For the third year in a row, Upgrade, Inc., a Fintech providing consumers access to credit, has been named a “Best Place to Work in the Bay Area” by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal.
“We believe in creating an environment that fosters collaboration and encourages our team members to learn from each other. If we can empower every team member to innovate, the sum total of these innovations will create fundamentally better products and experiences for our customers,” commented Laplanche.
According to a release, the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal ranks companies based exclusively on employees’ responses to a third-party survey. Companies that were recognized were rated highest on having a collaborative culture, solid compensation, great benefits offerings and leading management practices.
Upgrade currently offers personal loans as well as credit cards along with tools to help consumers better manage their finances.
Since 2017, Upgrade has issued over $2.5 billion in loans.
